1) Exactly how much is compatible between the CTW and PTW? I've been reading around here that cylinders are incompatible but some websites say it depends on the model of CTW you get, however the mags will work fine in either weapon, maybe some clarification on that?
2) As far as upgrade paths go, I'm looking at building a M18 style weapon (Flat RIS/RAS outer barrel) I've seen a few guys that have pictures of their weapons with the exact setup I'm looking for, however most of them claim they needed to do milling jobs and sand down edges and the likes. Bottom line question here is which one will I be able to do more to as far as aftermarket accessories go?
3) I've read on a few forums (This one included) that some of the older CTW's have wiring problems or whatever problems quite a bit, I saw that Hot Spot Airsoft says to hold off on purchasing any CTW until the "Fixes" are made, maybe a little bit more clarification on that as well?
That's pretty much all I have, this is my first post on this forum, but I've been browsing it for a little over a year now. Unfortunately my active duty lifestyle and the fact that I'm Afghanistan doesn't allow for me to spend hours in the computer rooms searching for these answers that almost seem like face palms to you all, but I do appreciate the time anyone takes to type up answers to what I'm looking for.
